  1. I went to the swap meet at north Weald today and bought a few bits
  2. Cheers but just bought a Aldon dizzy on eBay will buy a an A3 cam and fit some 40 dcoes when I rebuild it with a 11.5 compression with the flowed head all those guys that build stuff with 10.5 isn’t any good the last pic shows a lip on the arch which I’m going to remove
  3. It finally runs but broke the dizzy drive today
  4. I have two here one currently in the Mexico which needs to be swapped with the original box the other one I bought with a st170 engine that I’m using for the mgb which is already out of the car £250 + postage
  5. Changed the points today and after finding several gremlins in that neat bit of wiring it has a least coughed and popped out of the exhaust and carb when spinning over and oil is coming out of the rockers so that’s also a good sign, now that I’ve got that far I might just pull the running gear off and get it on the rotisserie as I've priced up inner/centre/outer sill repair panels as well as front jacking point and rear spring hanger/jacking point so looks like I’ve persuaded myself to rebuild it! Not that I haven’t got enough of my own already to do
  6. It was red in the original pics not sure about Alan Mann as you say might be a bit out there lol its definitely a one off lol
  7. Spot the areas where the red paint was many years ago lol
  8. Stripped the vinyl off the roof today and was thinking I was going to uncover alll sorts of horrors but just 1 corner that needs some welding, also put a battery on checked the oil and very clean spun it over but no spark cleaned the points and still nothing so ordered some new points and condenser which I need to pick up tomorrow looked underneath and needs both front jacking points and some inner sill repairs, floors are good, once I’ve got it running think I’ll pull the running gear off and put it on the rotisserie maybe alan Mann or broadspeed colours what do you think? Opinions welcomed
  9. Yes can’t you tell!? That’s why it’s so good
  10. Pic of under the bonnet not the best pic as just took it in the pitch black lol
  11. Thanks I thought they were but wanted to check
  12. Anglia arrived today it’s going to need some jacking points and rear inner sill work but generally good apart from that! Top plates have been welded but generally good as are chassis legs, It has steel bubble arches and the roof chop has been done well I’m going to remove the head tomorrow to see what (if any) has been done internally, what end is a xflow cam marked is it the flywheel end?
  13. Send me your number and a list of what you want
  14. I’m on the search for some decent banded steels and I’ve possibly got some JAP mag wheels coming
  15. So some of you may have seen ive purchased an Anglia 105e that’s had a bit of work done back in the 60s 70s Here are a couple of pics from then and this is is how it is now As you can see it’s definitely from back in the day lol with Magard dash and pinstriping but I quite like it fitted with discs on the front and some antitramp bars on the leafs on the rear, it’s got a tuned 1500gt engine which I’ll strip to see what’s been done and hopefully find some nice bits internally but the big question is what do I do with it?
  16. I’d have the mk2 as just the rear axle has atlas axle strengthening plate vented rear discs watts linkage and I’m sure the rest of the car will be trying to rip that out of the shell and that is a mk4 RS turbo pre 90 spec
  17. The idea is always great but to put it into practice is not worth the time and money unless you have too run it in a certain class etc go and buy a 2l zetec with bda cover and jenveys or turbo etc
  18. What I do with it is the next question to myself though
  19. I was trying to work out what it was originally! but a TR7 probably sounds the same a an F40 also
  20. He thinks he has one going to dig it out Saturday
